I don’t know how in the world we get so lucky. These last 2 months or so we have not only moved and lived in three different cities, we have moved to destinations. Half Moon Bay, Ventura, and Palm Springs–just pinch me. Or punch me, which is a sentiment shared by my friends in some climates […]
The Visual Post
Lately, all I’ve been listening to is Beyonce’s new album– her self-titled visual album. And since I have not posted since before Christmas and have a lot to cover, I thought I would merge the two together–yes, I realize this is the only way I can draw any similarity between my life and Beyonce’s, hah. Sometimes […]
It’s that time of year.
It is the weirdest thing to listen to Christmas music while sweating in the grocery store. I am still wrapping my brain around the fact that others in this world have been ushering in the holiday season in shorts and t-shirts. It isn’t my first experience with this phenomenon though, when we moved back from […]
"A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it" –John Steinbeck

“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.” ― J.M. Barrie
As I am getting ready to hit the road again, my main duties as the Event Coordinator for the ywca came to a close last night at my personal favorite event. It was such a fun night in a gorgeous location with wonderful ladies. It was a pretty poignant moment for me to see a […]
"The mountains are calling and I must go." John Muir
Today I am writing from deep within a canyon, outside of Pomeroy, Washington. After an 8 hour drive from my in laws, we arrived at the Last Resort campground. Could there be a better choice for the name? Nah. The drive here was incredible. Whenever we move to a new place, I am completely amazed […]
"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." – William Morris
Amen Brother. This quote is missing an important part though, when it is in the context of living in a trailer. This is how is should read, “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful, because if not you will go absolutely insane.” We definitely […]
